Stay in and Craft

We tried to go out yesterday only to find the weather very uncomfortable. It rained for a few days (making for a muddy start to lollapalooza I gather) and then midday yesterday the sun came out. So we tried to venture out only to be confronted with the kind of humidity that we orginally left the midwest to get away from! It hasn't been like that too much here since we moved here last year, and I'm hoping in general, it's not common for Chicago, we are by a lake. So we made the quickest trip out, getting to the red line station only to decide it just wasn't worth being outside.

Necklace for myself Necklace for myself

So we stayed in. I got some crafting done. Made a few necklaces for myself. My craft supplies are dwindling a bit and I haven't had the resources to restock them for a little while now. So, cobbling together what I had left, these will be for me, rather than for the shop. Hopefully in the near future I'll be able to get more supplies, I like how this one turned out and I'd like to keep it as a prototype for future items that might show up in the shop. For a clasp I finally put to use the handmade silver latch I made a year or so ago in a class with Marlo! Another reason this necklace is for me, cause that clasp is special to me. I also started a sewing project, which is still in progress. I hope it goes far so good...but we'll see.
